The kidneys, which are regulated by means of hormonal control, function to filter the blood and eliminate (excrete) metabolic waste products, including excess water, electrolytes and sodium, via the urine. They are also responsible for the excretion of many drug metabolites.
The three key hormones produced by the kidneys are calcitriol, erythropoeitin and renin. Calcitriol, 1,25 dihydroxychole- calciferol, the active form of Vitamin D, serves to regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphate, thus promoting the formation of strong bones.
Erythropoietin (EPO) stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells, while renin serves to regulate blood volume, thus playing an important role in the regulation of blood pressure. Additionally, the production of aldosterone by the adrenal glands is principally modulated by the renin-angiotensin system along with serum potassium. Experimental and clinical studies have demonstrated the importance of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, as well as the prognosis of coronary heart disease (CHD).
Renal Plus provides optimal nutritional support for the urological system, including specific vitamins, minerals, and neonatal glandulars, in a unique botanical blend.
Uva ursi, ( Arctostaphylos uva ursi ) - supplies a source of arbutin, flavonoids, such as ellagic acid, Quercetin, an essential oil, and phenolic glycosides. Uva ursi has been shown to decrease the cell surface adhesion of microbes on host cells, thus may influence the virulent properties of bacteria.
Buchu leaf, ( Agathosma betulina ) - is a source of diospheonol and terpenoids, including limonene, dipentene and menthone, together with diosmin and other flavonoid glycosides.
Echinacea, ( Echinacea angustifolia ) - is a source of inulin and other polysaccharides, which have been shown to support T-cell activation and reproduction. Recent scientific evidence has indicated that Echinacea has immunostimulant (or immunomodulatory) properties. Additionally, the study concluded that regular intake of Echinacea may be beneficial/prophylactic, as evidenced by elevated NK cells, which are prime elements in immuno- surveillance.
Cranberry, - a source of mannose, is believed to inhibit bacterial adherence to the lining of the bladder and urethra. Cranberry also has been shown to have antilithogenic properties, as concluded in a study, which indicated that the ingestion of cranberry juice significantly and uniquely altered three key urinary risk factors.
